Nobody likes limp, greasy hair (though if you do, more power to you!). What happens is your hair follicles get suffocated with oil, dirt, and all that hairspray you put on yesterday. This blocks the natural oils and important nutrients in order for your hair to do its thing – nourishing your locks. If you do find your hair is getting a little gross or even breaking out on your scalp, exfoliate it with a massage brush. Try Babyliss Scalp Massage Brush, $1.99.
- Shampoo and Condition
Did you know it’s bad for your hair and scalp to be washed every day? It strips your hair of those oils and nutrients it needs and dries your scalp out. Try shampooing every other day. When you wash your hair, be sure to massage it with your finger tips from your hairline to the nape of your neck. If you can’t handle not washing your hair daily, try mild shampoos every other day like Klorane Gentle Shampoo with Oat Milk, $13.
Don’t forget the conditioner! But don’t apply it directly onto your roots but the rest of your hair and most importantly your ends! I like to leave mine in for a few minutes so my hair can soak all the conditioning in. Also, deep condition your hair every few weeks. These strengthen your hair at the roots.
Make sure you get frequent trims to get rid of damaged ends. They can creep up and destroy a perfectly good strand of hair. But times that by 100,000 hairs on an average person and that’s a lot of damage… Once every eight to ten weeks is a good time frame for a cut.
- Diet and Exercise
What you take into your body is reflected in your appearance…including your hair! Diet and exercise is not only good for your body but it helps your skin, nails, and hair. These ten SUPERfoods will give you gorgeous locks and glowing skin because really… who doesn’t want that? – blueberries, wild salmon, spinach, oysters, tomatoes, walnuts, kiwis, dark chocolate, yogurt, sweet potatoes. Now mash it all up in your blender and drink away.
